'Good luck with the Ballon d'Or!' - Carragher aims another jibe at Balotelli

The war between the two players has been ongoing for some time and the former England man has prodded the Italian once again

THE WAR OF words between Jamie Carragher and Mario Balotelli shows no sign of abating.

Liverpool legend Carragher did not mince his words when he reacted to the news the striker had left Anfield for Nice on a free transfer, suggesting the French side had still paid too much for the Italian.

This prompted a response from the attacker, who branded the Reds legend as a “bad player, wonderful hater!”

Carragher has responded once again, this time in a Tweet dripping with sarcasm.

“I wish him well winning the Ballon d’Or in Nice,” the former England man wrote.
